The project site is situated in a complex context of ongoing redevelopment projects. The masterplan is the last piece of the puzzle that should make the transition between a big industrial zone and a densely populated neighborhood facing a lot of socio-economic challenges.
The old textile factory with a surface of 45.000m² will be turned into a business park for companies specializing in social employment, thus bringing jobs to the neighborhood. The rest of the site will be turned into a new neighborhood park in which water plays an active role. Social, ecological and economic sustainability are combined into an ambitious project.
